The Eagles defensive tackle, Fletcher Cox, scared off a suspect that broke into his house with a shotgun, early Wednesday morning in his own household. The suspect is known to be an ex-boyfriend of one of the women staying in Cox residence, according to a complaint filed. The surveillance cameras caught footage of the man walking around with a  baseball bat and attempted to go through the garage doors multiple times. He also threw rocks, damaging the front and rear windows of a vehicle and he began throwing larger rocks through the front door attempting to break-in. This was when Cox grabbed a shotgun causing the suspect to drive off in a black Porsche before police stopped him.
